ABOUT OUR APPLE BRANDY:
In collaboration with Hoch Orchard and Gardens in La Crescent, MN, an organic family farm set high above the Driftless Region’s bluff country of the Mississippi River Valley, we present to you this limited edition apple brandy. The Hochs pressed several varietals of apples from their 2018 harvest, fermented the juice on the farm and delivered an exemplary cider to the distillery. We double-distilled the cider and have aged it for the past two and a half years in used Four Roses six year whiskey barrels to create this Farmer Forward and Driftless Pure apple brandy.
